I just started my period last night and boy when I get my period each month the first three days are heck. I cramp so bad that I have bad blood clots. I get so tired and irritable. Do you get that way when you are on your period? I realize this is a embarrasing topic but I was just wondering what you all experience.

I used to have the same problem. I would cramp so bad that I couldn't do a thing but to lay in the bed and cry about it. no medicine would help me relieve the pain. It also made my back hurt. I finally fixed the problem by having a hysterectomy back in 1995. I was so glad not to have to go through the things that you are experiencing now any longer. It sure ruins alot of your days because it makes you feel really bad.

and men make a big joke out of it and don't understand why we get grumpy. I feel so bad, sore, tired, etc. All I want to do is go home but on some comfy jogging pants and curl up in a ball and lay in bed. I hate it. I am at work now and I want to leave and go home so bad it is killing me. I hate being grumpy and sick feeling.

Oh you have no idea-- I started menopause a few years back and now I become exhausted and achy all over not to mention cranky and weepy...I have started taking natural suplements called Phydo-estrogen--its better then hormones and it seems to help with the crankies.
